Solutions to the effects of global warming on water management from a economical point of view...proposed by
Economical solutions to the global warming and water problems in the world
To prevent countries and cities from being flooded and demolished when the glaciers melt, the government should build water ponds and dykes. One good role model is the Netherlands who have massive water ponds and many dykes, but the Netherlands is at such a risk that it would be smart if they expand their protection from the sea.
Because if the countries don’t build these water ponds and dykes they will face a much greater problem when the glaciers melt. The countries will get flooded and it will result in massive destruction of materials and an even bigger loss of human lives.
So the money that the governments will need to spend on these constructions will be well worth it in the end. They just need to remember that it will be a lot more expensive in the long run if they ignore the issue at hand instead of preventing it from ever taking place.
Natural disasters and heavy rain (Monsoons)
These appear more often because of the carbon dioxide that people let out into the atmosphere. To reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide the car manufactures need to make the electrical cars more appealing to the average person, by for example changing the way they look and making them cheaper. And the long term goal should be to only sell electrical cars.
Another solution that the governments can do to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is to establish a tax called “the carbon dioxide-tax”, that regulates the countries emissions. There will be a fixed amount of carbon dioxide that each country will be aloud to let out into the atmosphere. But if a country crosses that emission-line the government of that country will need to pay “the carbon dioxide-tax”.
Reforestation (planting of trees) is another way of decreasing the amount of carbon dioxide.
And last but not least, we can also reduce the carbon dioxide level by building more hydroelectric power and wind power instead of nuclear power plants.
All over the world people have constructed artificial lakes, and if the world could work together we could create such lakes in the countries that are suffering from a shortage of water.
